The recent update to MacOS Sonoma 14.1 has resolved the issue related to MFi USB audio devices. If you haven't done so already, please update your MacOS to the latest version to avoid the below issue.
Regarding the new MacOS 14 Sonoma, our development team has identified a limitation affecting Intel-based Mac devices running Sonoma in relation to MFi (Made for iOS) certified USB audio devices.
At this stage, we would advise against updating to the MacOS Sonoma or suggest reverting to a previously publicly available version, specifically MacOS 13 Ventura, if you rely on RØDE Products that necessitate MFi connections with Apple Intel-based Mac computers.
This includes the following RØDE products:
- PodMic USB
- VideoMic GO II
- VideoMic NTG
- Wireless GO II
- Wireless ME
- Wireless PRO
- RØDECaster Pro II (note: this affects USB 2 only)
- RØDECaster Duo (note: this affects USB 2 only)
Our Service Team has received inquiries regarding the compatibility of RØDE Products with the new MacOS Sonoma. Here are our responses:
